Updating a previous blog post on the Auckland, New Zealand Legionnaires’ disease outbreak, another patient was diagnosed with the disease today. This brings the total to 12 who have become sick in the last six months. The New Zealand Herald reports that 300 buildings in Auckland are believed to be affected, and that owners of buildings have been told to use chemical “shock treatments” to kill the Legionella bacteria. Unfortunately, with so many building affected, it is likely that more people will be affected by this outbreak.
More updates will follow as they become available.
